Welcome to this week's volume of so we heard you liek emotes. This is the 47th volume in a weekly series aimed towards promoting emote and emoticonists from the dA community. It features emotes posted within the past week from both well known and new emoticonists, as well as featuring some other great emote projects and contests.

The show must go on by mintyy is a great display of a pixel background with really nicely animated emotes. The spotlight really enhances the whole deviation to give a great concert effect.

2. Me no pea D: by Wooded-Wolf
Me no pea by Wooded-Wolf is a brilliant example of emoticons being used in different situations. The pixelling of the plate is exceptional with a great use of shadow to create an amusing situation.

3. :thumb137624251:
Kermodog has done a great job on The new dominoes. The perspective work and use of shadow really help make the emoticon look realistic and the animation throughout is extremely smooth

4. :tobeornottobe: by dutchie17
I really love :tobeornottobe: (To be or not to be) by dutchie17. The use of expression is brilliant and the smooth animation makes it brilliant to watch. The skull has been pixelled well to create a great all round emoticon

5. :revenge: +tard Mona Lisa by KimRaiFan
:revenge: by KimRaiFan is an amusing emoticon which shows what those emotes would get up to if ever placed behind the computer. The animation is nicely done and the emoticon is detailed throughout

Zombie Walk project

ZombieWalk - Emoticon Project by Locou

This week a great new zombie based project was launched. It's a flash based project which allows both animated and static entries to be combined to make a great project. It's already got a good number of entries but be sure to consider joining in

:bulletblue: Running an Emoticon Project</u> :bulletblue:

First off i'll admit i don't know everything about running an emoticon project. However after running a few myself and looking at where others fall through i've made a lil section on things to remember if considering making a project

- Projects take time to run if they become successful. If you're struggling for time then i don't advise you take up a project. Not only do you need time to set it all up, advertise it but you also need to be prepared to spend some time every few days to update it and make sure it runs smoothly

- Make sure you have enough knowledge to run the project. It's ok saying you will do a flash based project but if you have no idea about flash then a simple static project would be better

- Ensure you are fully prepared before launching a project. It's always better to have a base and background set up before launching it. It not only helps gives people ideas for the project but also helps make it easier to update at a later date.

- Make sure you know how your chosen project works. Some programs dislike certain file types (e.g PaintShop Pro dislikes downloaded .gifs) so be sure to check this stuff out so its easy for you to add entries in

- Be sure to know how to update a project. The most effective way of doing this is changing the file while editing a deviation and unchecking the box that appears below the new file so it appears in everyone's message centers again

- To make sure the project runs smoothly make sure all the information you leave is accurate and correct regarding number of entries, length of project etc

- Any added exposure for the project is usually a plus so if you want it mentioned in this news article and put on Emotication's project list be sure to contact me. Also by asking for exposure you can often get some pimpage from people's journals and get the project known.

The above covers the basics needed to run a project but for an extended and more indepth list check out this page on Emotication

I don't know why, but I can't see some of the deviations. They look like tiny square boxes instead.
